Remedi are recruiting a part time (21 hours) Restorative Justice practitioner to deliver their Restorative Choices Programme on a group and individual basis within HMP & YOI Doncaster. The practitioner will also be trained to facilitate Restorative Justice Services between victims and offenders as required.

The role has two distinct elements:

  1. The delivery of our Restorative Choices Programme to groups and individual offenders within HMP Doncaster.
  2. The provision of Restorative Justice services between those harmed by crime/conflict and those responsible for the crime/conflict.

The role of Restorative Practitioner requires confidence in speaking to groups of people, some of whom may have challenging behaviour, and the ability to communicate ideas regarding empathy, consequential thinking and victim awareness in a clear and effective manner.

The Restorative Practitioner aspects of the role, will involve supporting offenders and victims to enable them to communicate effectively with each other. This process helps reduce harm and enables individuals to move forward from what has happened. It can be facilitated through a face-to-face meeting or by acting as a go-between to pass messages between each party.
